Dying Light Review

dying light

You can purchase Dying Light at amazon.com

Finally! It is in my possession! Dying Light is by far one of the greatest games I have played in a long time. It has great features that make it fun, energizing, and a good ZOMGIE game. Good games are hard to come by, and good Zombie games are even harder to come by. My standards for a zombie game are pretty high, but this game passed all of my tests with flying colors. So where do I start?
Lets start with the gameplay. I am using my Alienware PC to play this game. My PC has an Intel i7 Core CPU, I have 8 GB of RAM, and I have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphics card. With all of this being said the game still lags a bit during intense cut scenes or hectic fight scenes. This is not a huge problem because the lag is minor, and it doesn’t really interfere with much of the gameplay. At most I’ve had a 1 – 2 second lag, and it was only during a cut scene so its not like I was getting pulverized by a zombie horde or anything. So, out of all the gameplay I’ve gone through this is the only major issue I could find. Everything else runs smoothly. Scaling walls, beating a zombie’s head in with a pipe, or just talking to other CPUs are flawless. Overall, the gameplay is smooth, and crisp.
But what about actually playing the game? Slow down their cowboy! I was just about to get there. The gameplay is… uh… well… I’d say… IT’S FREAKING AMAZING! Parkour + zombie apocalypse = SUPER FUN! Having the ability to scale walls, and evade zombies’ makes so much more sense to me than spraying and praying. Trying to kill every zombie you see would take too much time and effort. Plus, at night the zombies turn into… well I’ll just let you figure that out for yourself! And to top it all off the time used to kill zombies could be used to find supplies, or get to safety. In Dying Light you can use the time spent on not killing zombies to craft weapons, search for resources, completing missions, and so much more. All of your hard work will pay off once you level up and earn skill points to level up your character. You can learn crazy skills like dodge. This will help you evade zombies, all the more reason not to kill them all. In Dying Light you have the ability to scale walls with ease, jump over walls, or any parkour trick you can imagine. Zombie survival is all about evading, and not about killing. Staying alive is your priority, not killing everything that moves. Overall, I give Dying Light a 9 out of 10. It has great game mechanics, the game runs smoothly, and it’s NOT all about shooting. I have a feeling that this game is going to dominate most of my free time from now until I finish it. So, my recommendation is get the game! It is a great new game for all you zombie lovers, and you also have the option of playing Co-op with your friends. Surviving the zombie apocalypse just got a lot more intense!

Let the Terror Begin!

Until-Dawn2-nwm

Supermassive Games! No I’m not talking about games that are massive; I’m talking about the company Supermassive Games. Heard of them? I have heard bits and pieces about this UK Company, but I’ve never really known them until now. Their new game Until Dawn is one that will keep you at the edge of your seat. It’s a horror game that is set in a hotel area. There is a psycho serial killer on the loose, and you and your friends are next on his hit list. What’s worse is that there is more than just a killer on the loose. There are also jump scares from ghosts, and other creepy creatures of the dark! Personally, I hate horror games. They scare me, and I could never play them. Even if it was high noon, and my friends were all around I still wouldn’t pick up a horror game to play, but this game is different. For some odd reason I want to give it a try! It is scary, horrifying, gruesome, or any other adjective that describes creepy. So, why do I want to try this game? Honestly, I have no clue it just seems fun. I am hoping that Until Dawn will be the game changer that makes me enjoy these types of games. The suspense, and horror are, from what I’ve seen, outstanding! Ready your nerves, and prepare for a horrific adventure because the fun is just about to begin in the crazy universe of Until Dawn! Until Dawn will be coming out for the PS4 only, and will be coming out sometime in 2015.

Phrase: Any Last Wishes?

Bio: Ninjini was the most renowned magical ninja from ancient times, long before the Arkeyans ever rose to power. But a dark sorceress, who was jealous of Ninjini’s skill as a warrior, trapped her within an enchanted bottle to be imprisoned for all of eternity. Time stretched on, yet Ninjini remained steadfast and determined to escape – even mastering the dual sword technique within the solitude of her bottle. Over the years, her strength continued to grow until alas, through sheer force of will, she broke free! From that moment on, Ninjini made it her mission to help those in need as one of the first Skylanders, always carrying that enchanted bottle as a reminder of her own resilience.
